DF Hack Question
« on: November 30, 2016, 05:02:47 pm »

So using the autodump command in DF Hack, why do some items allow you to move them and some don't?

I know there are some circumstances when those items (say stones) are already allocated to another job.  But in my case I have a ton of stuff at the bottom of a gorge laying in a major river.  It's totally inaccessible to anyone so they can't be claimed for other purposes.

No.  In doing the autodump, some items from the piles get taken while others are left behind.  So I didn't know if it might be due to "type of item" but did find it strange.

Any item being used by a dwarf (worn, moved, scheduled to move) can't be autodumped. If you forbid everything you want to move, wait until all jobs get cancelled, pause, dump, autodump, you'll get the most items you can move.

If your animals aren't expendable, you could always station a dwarf or two out there?
